We are excited to announce our second annual 2019 Summer Reading Splash featuring the co-authors of the fourth installment of The Unicorn Rescue Society: The Chupacabras of the Río Grande, Adam Gidwitz and David Bowles! Please join us from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 18 at the Austin ISD Performing Arts Center.
A collaboration between the Austin ISD Libraries, BookPeople, and the Austin Public Library, the 2019 Summer Reading Splash will feature interactive sessions, hands-on activities, book signings, and more. The Splash programming will focus on readers in grades 3-6, but the 5 Book Dive Summer Reading Program is for students of every age.
Keynote speakers Adam Gidwitz and David Bowles will open the festival featuring their co-collaboration of the fourth installment of The Unicorn Rescue Society: The Chupacabras of the Río Grande. Gidwitz is a Newberry Honoree and co-creator of the mythical creatures series. Bowles is a Pura Belpré Honoree and native Texan.
We are anxiously awaiting the upcoming release of The Unicorn Rescue Society: The Chupacabras of the Río Grande on April 16, 2019. Join Elliot and Uchenna along with the quirky Professor Fauna as they take on a new adventure in their quest to find and save the mythical chupacabra.
Mark your calendars and get ready to start summer reading with a splash!
